The window sticker said 18 City and 24 Highway. Still on my first tank of gas and only getting 10.4 using eCo/Normal drive modes 75% of the time.

What is your average MPG in your new ST? Trying to see if it will improve the more I drive it ?!?!

I’m running at 17.4mpg. Mostly normal mode. I’m at just over 500 miles.
Great to hear! Do you “reset” the mpg reading after you fill up with gas usually? I’d like to make sure I am getting the best accurate reading. I do normally reset my trip miles so I know how many miles I get.

My wife is at 21MPG (I know, right!) and I drop the average 1 point every time a run an errand in it. LOL. She apparently only goes WOT at an on-ramp.

I only reset the trip 1 numbers at each fill up.

Your average MPG will get better as you drive it. Mine has been around 15mpg, but I've been mainly doing city driving.

4,000 miles, 16.5 avg. Mixed driving. 143 must be governed. When I backed out at 135 [wind on bridge] she was still climbing with a purpose.

Pulling 5600 lb trailer = 7.0 mpg @70 mph, 10.0 mpg @ 55. And it pulls it like there was nothing there!

How about you 'all other Star White owners - isn't it a blast that folks think YOU'RE the police!

Sea Level down here in Palm Beach, FL. I get 22.5 mpg on I95 doing 80 mph (which is excellent). My avg around town is only about 13.5 mpg (I have a heavy foot in Sport mode!)

Just over 9k on ours, average about 18 with mixed city/hwy and idle time. No eco mode or start-stop (always turn it off every time we get in the car) all normal and sport. My wife is also not light footed either, she loves the performance aspect of her ST.

Averaged 20.8 mpg on a 500 mile road trip last weekend. In town we got 18.4mpg this last week.

Mostly driving in eco mode, when I\we remember to turn it on!
